The Cape Verdean Diaspora in Portugal: Colonial

Portugal focuses on two distinct groups: the middle-class white elite and
the darker-skinned, migrant laborers. This challenging and unique work
strips bare the social relations -- race, gender, and class -- that
structure lived experience in this post-colonial society. Based on the life
stories of fifty Cape Verdeans living mainly in the metropolitan are of
Lisbon, this study provides an important analysis of these two remarkably
disparate groups and illustrate what it is to be part of the present day
Cape Verdean 'community' in Portugal. In addition to painting a complex and
realistic portrait of this world, Batalha further sheds light on the
social, national, and international dynamics of societies who struggle with
a racialized social order imposed and maintained for decades and, in some

Schooner Ernestina is underway for the season. It has been a challenging
several months, to say the least. Work has been completed in the yard and
the ship lays at New Bedford State Pier with underway programs commencing in
earnest. We are now on the South Side of the Pier with new berthing on a
floating dock in the works. More on this in the future!
Thank you so much if you have recently re-upped your membership - you are
helping Ernestina keep on sailing. Donations are greatly appreciated,
especially at this time. We are aiming at $100,000 for our fundraising
campaign through the end of the year but we have a ways to go!
There is a member sail this Friday and others through the summer. If you
would like to sail, please see
http://www.ernestina.org/calendar/memsail.html for member sail
opportunities. Remember to check back often for sails added over the course
of the season. Sign up today!
If you would like to donate now by credit card please go to
